ALASKA AT ST. LOUIS.
AY 111 llnvo More Elaborate Showing
Thau tho Islands.
Congress appropriated $50,000
for the display of au Alaskan exhi
bit at the St. Louis Exposition.
The people of the Territory regard
the appropriation as entirely inade
quate to make a proper representa
tion of its resources. They have,
however, signified their willingness
to add $100,000 in voluntary con
tributions to the sum voted by
Congress to help make up a credi
table exhibit, if the Secretary of the
Interior will ouly appoint the right
kind of a man for Territorial Com
missioner. It is only fair in a mat
ter of this sort, particularly when it
is backed by such a liberal ofTer,
that the wishes of those who are
most interested in the success of the
exhibit to be made should be con
sulted. Alaska is a land of vast resources
and great possibilities. The state
ment is not new, but its truth was
never more strongly in evidence
than it is today. The President
indicated in his speech at Seattle
that he has a just comprehension
of the Territory's resources and
future possibilities. Some critics
have accused him of being too opti
mistic, but he was possibly less in
error than they were in disputing
i it when he asserted that "the men
of my age who are in this great
audience will not be old men before
j they will see one of the greatest
and most populous states in the
j entire Union in Alaska." Nor was
he far wrong, if wrong at all, when
J he predicted "that Alaska will
i within the century support as large
I a population as does the entire
Scandinavian peninsula of Kurope;"
or that many of his auditors would
"see Alaska with her enormus re
sources of minerals, fisheries and
her possibilities that almost exceed
belief, produce as hardy and vigo
rous a race as any part of America."
These changes in Alaska's popu
lation are not only possible, but
probable. There is no section of
the continent which possesses more
varied resources or more of these
resources which build up great and,
prosperous states. Its area is large
enough to absorb all of the popula
tion of New England and still leave
it sparsely populated. The develop
ments of the past five or six years
have opened the world's eyes to its
possibilities as a field of natural
wealth inviting exploitation on the
largest scale, and a careful study
of its climate and soil has resulted
in the entertainment generally of
new ideas concerning its possibili
ties for the support of a large and
prosperous population in a branch
of industry which popular belief
previously assumed it was incapa
ble of sustaining. A good exhibit
of the Territory's resources at the
St. Louis Exposition will undoubt
edly help to dispel 'many popular
illusions regarding it.
